Ask the Westie: How can you make your new house guest feel at home this holiday?

From snow-covered trails to warm nights cuddling by the fire, the holidays are finally here, and with them come the holiday gifts that keep on giving: brand new puppies. But before you and your new pup become BFFs, here are a few reminders to help make your home their home too.

Know Your Motivation.

Ask yourself why you want us to join your home. If you have a large family, make sure everyone is committed to their furry new friend for the long haul.

Own Your Ownership.

Before purchasing a new pup, assess your lifestyle priorities to make sure they match those of your prospective pet. Make sure your pup has a similar activity level, be honest about your pet patience and flexibility, and ask your neighborhoods about the pet friendliness of your location. Overall, remember we are a commitment, and that means taking all the steps to make sure we wont drive each other barking mad.

Vet Your Veterinarian.

Before you bring us home, make sure to find the right veterinarian. They will be your long-term partner in keeping us happy and healthy.

Now that you're ready to pick the perfect puppy, here's how to make sure your first dog days go smoothly. Be sure to get a copy of your pet's medical information from the shelter or breeder to bring to your first veterinary exam, don’t let us ride unrestrained in the car and be sure we are in the backseat, give us time and space to adjust to our new environment, and consider a long-term wellness plan.
